Picture-A-Week 2019 - Week 42

Recommended Posts

Pictures taken between Monday, October 14 and Sunday, October 20.

 

Rules: See above

That's it. This isn't a contest.

All photos taken this week are welcome (not just cruising).

Prizes will not be awarded. Discovering the joy of photography is the prize.

The idea is to get folks out using their cameras for more than vacations and toddler birthdays.

Post one. Post many. Up to you.

Have fun with your camera and share your fun with others!

We were told that this one nearby is a Corky-stem Passion Vine fruit , native to Florida and edible . But we're not that hungry .

During a visit to an open garden in Mt Wilson, west of Sidney I came across this unusual plant, which I believe is a Helicodiceros muscivorus, the dead horse arum lily. There were numerous flies etc. buzzing about, attracted by a distinct smell of rotten meat 🤢

The main reason for the visit to these gardens though were the many spring-flowering shrubs, like rhododendrons, azaleas and wisterias344903219_BusTripMtWilson15_10.thumb.jpg.da8950518901b3ce14839fc62a571daf.jpg

Some of our Florida wetlands activity yesterday - the day started with a light drizzle and stayed overcast, but the bird selection was great.  Really seeing a lot of migrators, and a few of our winter birds are back too.  All shots at Green Cay Wetlands:
